Large Victorian Antique Treen Butter Stamp
This is a rather lovely nineteenth Century treen turned butter mould, with exquisite fine carving of a strawberry bush.
The hardwood stamp has a beautiful dark aged colour and patina, with the carving in exquisite detail. In a mushroom shape, this would look lovely on display.
As with many antique and vintage items, this does show signs of its age. There is a shrinkage crack through one side of the mushroom, moving through the stamp for 2.5cm in length. This has previously been filled although some of this has now fallen away. Fortunately, however, this is on the edge of the carving so doesn’t affect the use of the stamp in any way. It still looks amazing!
Height, 13.5cm; Width, 9cm.
